A look back to my first dishtowel

(click picture for larger view)

14 x 20 inch dishtowel, made from peaches & cream #133 Shaded Denim variegated color cotton yarn, handwoven on Erica rigid heddle loom, Sept 2008, hem is hand sewn.

The cloth feels kind of heavy because I beat the yarn (weft) pretty firmly as I wove it. Since then I learned to "place" the weft rather than beat it.

The cloth is very sturdy and is seeing regular service in our kitchen as a dishtowel, although it could be pressed into service as a place mat if needed.
